Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cardiology
  • Disease

Virend K. Somers mainly investigates Internal medicine, Obstructive sleep apnea, Sleep apnea, Cardiology and Anesthesia. His Internal medicine study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Endocrinology. The concepts of his Obstructive sleep apnea study are interwoven with issues in Sleep disorder, Central sleep apnea, Polysomnography and Diastole.

His Sleep apnea research integrates issues from Intensive care medicine, Endothelial dysfunction, Apnea, Disease and Comorbidity. His Anesthesia research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Hypoxia and Blood pressure. His Blood pressure research includes themes of Hemodynamics and Positive pressure.

His most cited work include:

  • Sympathetic neural mechanisms in obstructive sleep apnea. (1970 citations)
  • Sleep Apnea and Cardiovascular Disease An American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology Foundation Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association Council for High Blood Pressure Research Professional Education Committee, Council on Clinical Cardiology, Stroke Council, and Council on Cardiovascular Nursing In Collaboration With the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute National Center on Sleep Disorders Research (National Institutes of Health) (1638 citations)
  • Metabolic Syndrome and Risk of Incident Cardiovascular Events and Death: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Longitudinal Studies (1487 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Cardiology, Obstructive sleep apnea, Sleep apnea and Endocrinology. His studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Anesthesia and Polysomnography. His Anesthesia study incorporates themes from Sleep in non-human animals and Hypoxia.

His study in the field of Atrial fibrillation, Coronary artery disease, Myocardial infarction and Sudden cardiac death also crosses realms of In patient. His Obstructive sleep apnea research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Stroke, Intensive care medicine, Disease and Risk factor. His studies deal with areas such as Apnea–hypopnea index, Hypoxemia and Apnea as well as Sleep apnea.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (72.11%)
  • Cardiology (50.20%)
  • Obstructive sleep apnea (30.88%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (72.11%)
  • Cardiology (50.20%)
  • Obstructive sleep apnea (30.88%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Cardiology, Obstructive sleep apnea, Sleep apnea and Heart failure. His Internal medicine study frequently involves adjacent topics like Endocrinology. His research on Cardiology frequently links to adjacent areas such as Sleep in non-human animals.

His Obstructive sleep apnea research incorporates elements of Disease, Apnea and Polysomnography. His research investigates the connection with Sleep apnea and areas like MEDLINE which intersect with concerns in Sleep apnea syndromes. In his study, Breathing is strongly linked to Central sleep apnea, which falls under the umbrella field of Heart failure.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Sleep Apnea: Types, Mechanisms, and Clinical Cardiovascular Consequences (372 citations)
  • National Sleep Foundation's sleep quality recommendations: first report. (291 citations)
  • Association Between Hypoxemia and Mortality in Patients With COVID-19. (138 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cardiology
  • Disease

His primary areas of study are Internal medicine, Cardiology, Obstructive sleep apnea, Sleep apnea and Endocrinology. In the subject of general Internal medicine, his work in Blood pressure, Hazard ratio, Heart failure and Ejection fraction is often linked to In patient, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His work in Cardiology covers topics such as Confidence interval which are related to areas like Odds ratio.

His research in Obstructive sleep apnea intersects with topics in Baroreflex, Sleep disorder, Randomized controlled trial, Apnea and Polysomnography. Sleep apnea is a primary field of his research addressed under Anesthesia. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Anesthesia, concentrating on Sleep restriction and frequently concerns with Wakefulness.
